are you sure there’s a pilot? That looks like a newer range, I would think it would have an electric ignite.

I don’t know about the pilot, but you could always do what I do for my crap-tastic stove. Grill lighter (long one) – Light it, then turn on the gas and hold it near the burner. Yeah… we really could use a better stove.

I just googled your range – it’s definitely electric ignition. So if it’s plugged in (since it’s built in you might not even be able to access the plug) and you don’t have a blown fuse/circuit it’s probably an issue with the igniters.

So yeah, if you want to cook your going to have to light it yourself as PP stated. I’ve done it before on my stove during a blackout. Just be careful.

Don’t you just turn the burner knob to “Light” and then turn to the setting you want?

Is this stove new to you? Is there air in the lines?

Have you had a spill recently where the burner cap or gas tube have become clogged?

Has someone accidentally turned the main gas shutoff valve to the off position?

Have you blown a fuse? or tripped a circuit breaker?

Glad you figured that out! I haven’t had that one happen, but I have discovered that my burners won’t light if the burner cap is off slightly (like I’ve knocked it, or cleaned it and then not put it back on 100% solidly). Modern technology….
